    it can be done, and it's in your manual. go read it again
    Google is your friend. Make use of it.

    If you're referring to Nikon AWL with the pop-up as commander, it needs to fire to trigger the remote speedlights. However, it can be set such that it does not contribute to the exposure.

    under menu "Bracketing/Flash" to go into commander mode. you can set the built-in flash to "--" so it wont affect the lighting, but it will still pre-flash to trigger the remote flash.
